Snickers Cake

I am in love!  With my husband, yes, but also with this cake!  It was his birthday last week and he had originally requested German Chocolate Cake with accompanying frosting but when he saw on Facebook that someone had pinned this recipe from Six Sisters Stuff, he decided he wanted to try this instead.  I may or may have not have had a piece for breakfast the next morning. 
It's easy and fast, uses a cake mix and requires no frosting.  It can also be eaten warm or cold so no need to wait if you are in a hurry.

1 German Chocolate Cake Mix
Ingredients called for on cake mix (oil, eggs, water)
1 (14 oz) bag of Kraft Caramels (or any other caramels you like)
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter (which is about 3/4 of a cube)
1-2 cups chocolate chips (however many you like)
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix together cake mix as directed on the box. Pour half of the batter into a greased 9x13 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
While it bakes, unwrap all the caramels (don't have your husband help- he will eat half of them. I am totally speaking from experience). Put the caramels, milk, and butter in a sauce pan and melt over low heat, stirring constantly until caramel is melted and smooth.
Pour the caramel on the cake as soon as it is finished baking. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and pecans on top of the caramel. Spread the remaining half of the prepared cake mix batter on top. Bake for 20 more minutes at 350 degrees.
